Opiate Addiction Treatment at The Ranch
We treat opioid addiction with approaches that are grounded in evidence. Get effective treatment that is also respectful and compassionate. Attend inpatient rehab with peers that understand your struggles. The Ranch treatment programs offer:
Personalized Treatment Plans
The Ranch’s inpatient treatment team evaluates your mental and physical health to make sure we’re addressing all your needs. We’ll determine the best treatment options for your diagnoses and personal preferences. You’ll receive expert psychological and medical care. Addiction to opioids not only wreaks havoc on your physical health, but also your mental and spiritual health. Your treatment plan will consider the best ways to restore overall well-being.
Safe and Comfortable Detox
Without proper medical care, opiate withdrawal can be painful and even dangerous. Opioid abuse causes your body to become dependent on these drugs. When you stop abusing them, the body’s nervous system tries to re-regulate itself. Opiate addiction withdrawal happens during this process. Opiate withdrawal symptoms may include:
- Bone and muscle aches
- Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
- Anxiety or nervousness
- Excessive sweating
- Sleep disturbances
The Ranch’s medical team makes sure detox from opioid drugs is safe and comfortable. We use proven medications to ease the symptoms of opioid withdrawal. Our nurses are with you around the clock to attend to any discomfort. We regularly monitor your vital signs and keep you safe.
Psychiatric Treatment for Mental Health Issues
People are more susceptible to opioid use disorders and painkiller addiction when they also have co-occurring mental illness. Co-occurring disorders often include:
- Anxiety disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Personality disorders
The numbing characteristics and “euphoric” effect provided by higher doses of some prescription painkillers can become a form of self-medication. People begin taking opioids to “treat” physical pain as well as psychological pain. On the other hand, drug abuse can also cause symptoms that mimic mental health disorders.
The Ranch’s psychiatric team will meet with you to determine if you have co-occurring disorders. We may prescribe antidepressants and other medications to treat mental health conditions as appropriate. You’ll have regular check-ins to assess any side effects and gauge improvement of symptoms. Getting a handle on mental illness symptoms can help you feel less of an urge to abuse substances.
Therapies That Keep You Engaged in Treatment
The Ranch provides treatment options that are relevant to your needs. We treat opioid addiction with a whole-person approach. In addition to individual and group therapy, opioid treatment includes alternative therapies. Some of our treatment programs offer:
- Equine therapy
- Adventure therapy
- Trauma therapies like EMDR
- Native American healing traditions
Substance abusers benefit from a wide selection of treatment options beyond talk therapy. We’ll help you get to the reasons behind opioid abuse and addiction. We also help you begin repairing the toll opioid abuse has taken on all facets of yourself — physical, mental and spiritual.
Comfortable Living Situation
We add special touches that make The Ranch treatment facility feel more like home. Our inpatient rehabs are complete with cozy furnishings and en suite bathrooms. We decorate our walls with pleasing artwork and provide welcoming gathering areas. Some of our inpatient treatment centers offer private bedrooms. You’ll enjoy well-balanced meals prepared by our professional culinary team.
Support for Your Loved Ones
Opioid abuse and addiction affects the entire family. An important part of addiction recovery is gaining the support of loved ones. The Ranch offers family therapy as appropriate. Our trained therapists will help you and your loved ones talk through difficult topics. You’ll learn healthier ways to communicate and support each other.
Planning for Long-Term Recovery
Addiction recovery begins during inpatient rehab and continues into everyday life. You’ll learn important skills for preventing relapse. From day one, we’ll teach you self-care practices that help in the face of triggers. We also provide aftercare planning so you have important resources in place when you walk out our doors. These may include:
- Appointments with therapists
- Medical appointments for maintenance therapy if you’re on medications to treat opioid use disorders (medication-assisted treatment for opioid and heroin addiction)
- Connections to intensive outpatient rehab or sober-living facilities
- 12-step support groups or alternatives to the 12 Steps like SMART Recovery
- The Ranch alumni events
